Our Pocket Radio is a Real Blessing When Small Size is Important.

We combined ease of use, very good reception and sharp, well defined audio together in this little jewel of a radio. You can listen on the built-in speaker or the included high quality original CC Buds Earphones tuned for superior voice clarity and music. It has five, one touch memory car type buttons for each band and stands upright when needed. Rubber coated sides help with grip. Lock switch to prevent accidental on/off or station change.

A much appreciated comment from a customer said it better than we could:

I am proud to own it (the CC Pocket Radio) partly because of the pride you must have in designing with such care.

Thank you from the C. Crane crew!

Can you explain how the 55 memories work?

The 5 memory buttons provide 5 memories per band for quick use. As an advanced function you can access additional memory pages for AM and FM. To access memory pages 2-5 when in AM or FM mode, press and hold the Band button for 5 seconds. On the screen the word PAGE will blink (10 seconds until timeout). During this time, press the page number of memories you want using the 1-5 buttons on the front. For example if you wanted page 2 of the memories, press the band button for 5 seconds, then press button #2. Please note: This function does not work in WX mode.

How long will the radio retain my clock and preset settings while I change the batteries?

The CC Pocket will retain its memory settings for approximately 15 minutes without batteries.

How do I activate the narrow AM filter?

Quickly press memory buttons #1 and #3 at the same time while listening to your desired AM station. Press again to return to normal (wide) filtering. Note: This setting is helpful to eliminate unwanted noise or adjacent overlapping stations. Narrow AM (2.5 KHz) may work best for voice. The normal setting (4 KHz) is best for music.

Can I improve FM performance by using earbuds or an external FM antenna wire?

The built-in FM antenna is good but it can be improved by connecting an FM antenna wire or headphones/earbuds.

I have noticed that my AM reception is not as good as it used to be. Also, how come it is not stopping on any stations when scanning the AM band?

If you are scanning the band for a strong station and it never stops it may be set to 9KHz. Check to make sure you are set to 10KHz tuning; if you are in 9KHz mode it can greatly affect the reception, not just the tuning. Turn the radio off, Press and hold down memory button #5. If 10 pops up on the display then it was set at 9KHz which would cause of the diminished reception. If 9 pops up than it was already set on 10KHz and it would then need to be changed back to 10.

How do I restore the radio to factory defaults?

With the power OFF, press and hold the memory buttons #1 and #5 for five seconds. You will hear a tone to signify it has been done.

When I use earbuds, I can hear "noise" (sounds like a soft hissing) in the background. How come?

This is normal. What you are hearing is the audio amplifier circuit for the headphone jack.

How come my batteries slide around like they do not fit?

Please make sure you are using (2) AA batteries. Using AAA batteries will not keep a stable connection to the battery contacts because they are too small.

What are the steps for setting and activating the Weather Alert?

  1. Turn the radio on by pressing and releasing the red power button (on top of the radio)
  2. Press and release the Band button (top button on right side of the radio) until WX shows on the display
  3. Change the channel with the Up or Down tuning buttons until you hear your local NOAA Weather Broadcast
  4. Press and hold the Alert button (second button on the right side of the radio) until the desired hours of monitoring (4hr, 8hr or 16hr) are selected
    Note: While the weather alert is activated, AM and FM will be disabled until it is de-activated.
    The display light will flash once every few seconds to remind you that the NOAA Weather Alert is "ON".
  5. When NOAA issues a weather alert, the radio will continuously beep
  6. Press and release the Power Button to listen to the weather broadcast
  7. To de-activate the Weather Alert, press and hold the Alert button for 3 seconds

Can I use Lithium type batteries in my radio?

Technically NO. We do not recommend using Lithium type batteries due to the higher voltage they produce. Even though the specifications for some lithium batteries state 1.5 volts, they can register up to 1.8 volts when they are fresh. Our products are designed to operate on a very light load. Using lithium batteries that register higher (using a voltmeter) than 1.6 volts can cause damage to our products.
